My Mistake

I worked in Hell---er Vivint--- this past summer. Obviously, I didn't enjoy it. There were some really awesome people, and I got to chat with some even awesomer people, but there were some down sides. One of the major downsides was a coworker.

This coworker was a total douche bag. At first he was really fun to talk to, and we had enough in common. Then it got weird, and off colored, and just plain wrong. (I do believe I posted about it before.) When things began to suck, I should have gone to Brandon (my supervisor), but I didn't. That was my mistake. Yesterday, this same coworker and I got talking (via text, because I don't talk to him otherwise...). He asked some inappropriate things and it as disgusting. So I went to the police. I just wanted it on record, in case anything were to happen in the future. I didn't want anything else to slip past.

I am incredibly tired of guys being jerks, to me or anyone else. Someone I go to school with is incredibly sexist, and I really am ready to tell him where to stick it. I'm not okay with guys that think it's alright to treat women like anything less than the person they are. I don't believe women have any more rights than men, or that they are better, but we are equal.

Equal in the sense that we are humans, we have feelings, we have dreams, we have strengths and weaknesses, we have opinions. I don't believe that we can do EVERYTHING men can, and men cannot do EVERYTHING women can. It is not the way we are built, but that does not mean we aren't equal at all. Men tend to be stronger, and they are better at somethings. Women are more nurturing and better at other things. In the end, it balances out. But if men are constantly pushing women down, then our entire world is doomed.

And if you're constantly pushing me down, you are really doomed. I won't stand for it. I don't care who you are, if you're gonna treat me like crap, I'll put you back into your place, properly.

On a lighter note, I did get my Christmas tree lights working. (No pun intended, though it was pretty aweosme!) After Nathan and I took all the lights off of two sections to repair them, only to find out we didn't need to... we got it all back on! You can't even tell we did that! I am incredibly proud of my lighting job. And I'm really glad Nathan sat there supporting me the entire time. I'll post pictures once we get it all decorated!

Also, I plan on taking a creative writing class this next semester, wish me luck! I am super stoked. I love writing, and haven't been able to do enough with it. I'm ready to refine any talent I have. I'm also excited to learn about creative writing. The realistic part of my brain has a hard time allowing me to write fiction and fantasy successfully. I just can't get it out. My imagination gets shut down all the time. So it'll be interesting to see how that goes.

For now, enjoy this:

 

The world's largest C-47. BAM! Imagine the diffusion you could clip on with that sucker!

No post November?

Sorry guys, it has been so long since I last posted. I don't want to try to catch up, because that would take forever and I'd probably never finish and then continue to not post. In all actuality (I have always wanted to use that word), there hasn't been one single thing keeping me from posting.

First, I've been busy with school. I built a nice little website. Here is a link to it, which will stop working in the spring, so enjoy it while you can. The form doesn't actually work...I don't know why, but it just doesn't.
mysite.tc.uvu.edu/morganalvari

Don't worry about reading everything on it...or anything. I didn't put effort into the writing on it. I just needed words to fill paragraphs.


Second, I've been overly stressed. I don't have a job, and it's getting a bit stressful. I need money big time for my car. The dilemma is this: When I turned 16, employers wanted to hire 18 year-olds. When I turned 18, they were looking for 20 and older. Now I am twenty. Guess what age they want! 21. Next year, I will turn 21, and they will want 25! I swear, I'm gonna start lying about these things. I have applied nearly everywhere... My next choice is Mcdonald's. Not the best, but at least it is money, right?

Third, life in general. I am really sorta sick of being a girl. I get a lot of crap from the guys at school. One in particular never takes me seriously. He will fail and flop through a project instead of take my advice. When we work together, he just tunes me out, so when he fails and I save us...he feels a bit dumb. Mostly though, he just treats me like a toddler with autism than an adult, who probably knows more than him.

In other news, I got called as a primary worker. I'll be a sub. The thing is, the primary president is one of the people who I try to avoid. After she treated me like crap when I was a teen, I'm not looking forward to being near her so often. Unfortunately, I will have to suck it up and be polite. It's hard when she is extremely two-faced.

I'm heading down to Gunnison this weekend with Nathan. We're going to be staying at his dad's wife's parents home. Its for a school assignment. I'll return with photos and stories!

Shell

An empty shell lost on the shore, tossed aside relentlessly by surging waves.
Polished yet battered by the sand., it rests face down.
Cracked by pressure, but alluring, mesmerizing.
Flecks of false gold surrounded by lively rose, it is the one to catch the eye.
Nothing to offer, except hope to others that they may find another shell, cracked and broken yet beautiful.

"Lost" Fortresses of Sahara Revealed by Satellites

"Lost" Fortresses of Sahara Revealed by Satellites


Not gonna lie, this seriously excited me beyond belief. I love National Geographic.

As a kid I wanted to be a scientist so I could have articles about my discoveries in the magazines...now I would be happy photographing or writing for it.

Either way, all of their articles really excite me, especially the ones about lost things being found, or new fossils being unearthed.

Nov. 1. 2011.

My last post was about me being artsy and creative. Well turns out, none of the thins I wanted to do worked. I did the sock bun in Kenzie's hair, and that went pretty good. I learned her hair is far to think to do it with one sock in one bun. Next time, I'll do two socks and two buns. Then we couldn't do leg warmers, so instead we made rag skirts for her American Girl dolls. It was cheap, and fairly easy. I enjoyed it. I will post pictures when I remember to do that.

Today is day of the dead. My least favorite holiday. I've never liked day of the dead. I never will. No offense to anyone. I just am not into it. I prefer cute holidays like Christmas and Valentine's Day. I'll stick with those.

Right now, I'm somewhat blah. It just happens. Hormones go up and down all the time. Right now they're down. I don't really want to have anything to do with a lot of the people I normally associate with. I've been avoiding them all day. It's terrible, I know. I only want to talk to people that aren't all about work, and people that I don't get confused by. I think a lot of these blah feelings have to do with hormones (aunt irma's visit ended), but I think that a bunch of it has to do with just life and dealing with it.

There's just a lot of stress right now. It's really hard to focus on school when all I want to do is sit in my jamies while watching "The IT Crowd." 

Funny moments, enjoy!
